Disney+ and Hulu have today released the official trailer for the chilling forthcoming series “Goosebumps”, inspired by R.L. Stine’s worldwide bestselling Scholastic book series.
Starring Justin Long (Barbarian) and Rachael Harris (“Lucifer”), alongside newcomers Zack Morris (“EastEnders”), Isa Briones (“Star Trek: Picard”), Miles McKenna (“Guilty Party”), Ana Yi Puig (“Gossip Girl”) and Will Price (The Equalizer), the show will transport the audience into a world of mystery and suspense as we follow a group of five high school students who set out on a shadowy and twisted quest to investigate the tragic passing of a teenager named Harold Biddle three decades earlier – all the while uncovering dark secrets from their parents’ past.
Nicholas Stoller (The Muppets) and Rob Letterman (Pokémon Detective Pikachu) developed the series and serve as executive producers, alongside Hilary Winston (“Community”), Neal H. Moritz (Fast & Furious franchise”), Scholastic Entertainment’s Iole Lucchese (Clifford the Big Red Dog), Pavun Shetty (“The Boys”), Conor Welch (“Platonic”), Scholastic Entertainment’s Caitlin Friedman (Stillwater), Erin O’Malley (“New Girl”) and Kevin Murphy (“Desperate Housewives”).
Published by Scholastic, “Goosebumps” is one of the bestselling book series of all time, with more than 400 million books in print in 32 languages. The new television series draws on elements from five of the most popular middle grade books including “Say Cheese and Die!,” “The Haunted Mask,” “The Cuckoo Clock of Doom,” “Go Eat Worms!” and “Night of the Living Dummy.”
From Disney Branded Television and Sony Pictures Television, the 10-part series will launch with a five-episode drop on Friday, October 13 as part of Disney+’s “Hallowstream” and Hulu’s “Huluween” celebrations, with subsequent new episodes streaming weekly.
